Description
Eleven-year-old Jon Whitcroft never expected to enjoy boarding school—but then, he never expected to be confronted by a pack of angry ghosts either, in this illustrated fantasy novel for readers 9 to 12 from the author of Inkheart, Reckless, and The Thief Lord. Jon has no idea what to do, until he meets Ella Littlejohn, whose grandmother might actually be a witch. Together, Jon and Ella must uncover the secrets of a centuries-old murder, while being haunted by phantom horsemen intent on revenge. Jon finally summons the ghost of the knight Longespee for his protection, though there's just one question: Can Longespee really be trusted?

"A simultaneously creepy and romantic middle-grade ghost story that will please her legions of younger fans. Despite the book's length, the story moves quickly, filled with daring midnight expeditions and close calls with death."—Publishers Weekly

"[Cornelia] Funke's consummate way with setting, well interpreted in [Andrea] Offermann's looming illustrations, brings the medieval English town (and all of its ghosts) to life, from the sprawling boarding school campus to the echoes-of-the-past cathedral and eerie cemetery grounds; a side jaunt to Stonehenge even adds some levity. Appended notes discuss Funke's inspiration for the story and provide history about the real-life people and places."—Horn Book
